The Collector of Salem has communicated to me that a small quantity of goods were imported there from France by Mr. Cutts of Ports-mouth in April last, upon which the Duties were paid agreeably to the original Invoice, said to have been made out according to the depreciated state of Assignats.

That part of my letter of the 25th. Ultimo, which says that “the drawback cannot be allowed, unless the proof required of its having been actually landed at a foreign port is produced” is a mistake, arising from my not having at the moment adverted to the difference of the regulations concerning drawbacks, as applied to distilled Spirits, from those relating to other articles.

I am to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 10th Instant. Whatever constructions may have been put upon the Act for regulating the coasting trade, it is very certain that the law makes no provision for a second registry in the case as stated by you. It will be a natural conclusion therefore to suppose, that if any Ship or Vessel has been once registered agreeably to the forms...

I think it will be proper for the reasons in your letter of the 23d. ultimo, that you do not pay into the Providence Bank, for the account of the United States the monies you have in hand, and which you shall receive before the 20th. of May next. It is however my desire that you deposit the same in that institution to be passed to the credit of “the Collector of the district of Providence” and...
